the chairman of standing committee, contrast that with chuck hagel. 84% of americans for conservative action, voting record in his canner radio, voting for the bush tax cuts, voted for the war in iraq, oted against no child left behind but was a small government conservative, and republicans right now, particularly tea party, are not looking for converts like the democrats were with joe leiberman. they're looking for heretics. and they see in chuck hagel who never endorsed barack obama, was friendly with him, traveled with him, but didn't endorse him. they see this terrible heretic. and it's really, that is where the republicans are right now. they are looking for heretics instead of converts. and i think it's apparent in the tea party. but i think it's apparent in the ranks of the entire ranks of the party. >> you have effectively turned the corner to the next thing i wanted to ask you about, and this is the hagel confirmation. the republicans, i gather, we're told t is unprecedented, blocking the nomination or the confirmation so far of the man president obama wants to be his defense secre

senator chuck hagel and about the benghazi terror attack. joining me now one of the senators leading the charge, republican lindsey graham of south carolina. you were telling me before we went on the air that you have gotten new information about chuck hagel. what is it? >> on the day of the vote there was a blog posting about a speech i think in 2007 or 2008 that chuck hagel made at rutgers university and the blogger was a supporter of senator hagel who was thinking about running for president and he put on his blog the next day 6 points of the speech question and answer is session and point six was allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back from senator hagel in response to my question did you say that and do you believe that and the letter said he did not recall saying that and he disavows that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well, if in fact that is true, that would end that matter because he previou

that republicans like texas senator ted cruz have put on chuck hagel to mccarthyism. what was the point of prolonging this hagel vote until after everyone reconvenes? >> well, i think that republicans started out with some legitimate questions about this, and they would say they're just trying to get those answered and need more time. it was harry reid who called this vote as sort of an attempt to call their bluff saying this is enough, you're delaying this for no reason but i don't think this is going to help the republicans' image especially when they're going around saying we're not actually trying to stop this nomination. we're not actually filibustering, so what are they doing? i think especially for people who are sick of the sort of washington games, this isn't a good image for them. >> jake, let's talk about this break that congress is on. house speaker nancy pelosi blamed republicans for not using this time more productively. take a listen. >> they manufactured the crisis and instead of having us try to avert that crisis they go on a nine-day recess. why? ? why? people outside

of chuck hagel, he's definitely making his opinion known. >> bill: well, there are -- by the way, a contrast with elizabeth warren, for example who has really followed the model of hillary clinton al franken, keep your head down, you know, don't make a lot of noise. don't be a showboat. be a workhorse. >> they know they have the star power, an audience looking at them. they really want to keep their head down even more and work hard. >> bill: right. with ted cruz, there are two republican senators at least that i can remember, both john mccain and lindsey graham came out publicly and said that they thought ted cruz had gone over the line with some of his questioning of chuck hagel. when your own fellow republicans call you to task, does that mean anybody to a guy like ted cruz? what does he say when reporters ask him about the criticism? >> i came to washington from texas to shake things up, not necessarily follow the rules set in place in the nation's capital. he is really going to represent his conservative constituent's interest and if that means going against members of his o

. new information about the nomination of the former senator, chuck hagel, to be the nation's next secretary of defense. let's go to capitol hill to dana bash. what are you learning? >> reporter: cnn has learned that chuck hagel's confirmation to be the next defense secretary appears to be all but certain. the reason we can report that is by some excellent digging by our producers. what they have found out is they have found at least five republican senators who have said that they would oppose any filibuster to block hagel's nomination. so mathematically what that would mean is even if there would be a filibuster, which is still an if, he would likely have the votes to overcome that and would go on to become the next defense secretary. they talked to a lot of senators, a lot of senators' offices and they came up with five. only two of them are actually going to support hagel's nomination, but the other three, richard burr, john mccain, and todd coburn have all told us they would oppose a filibuster if it came to that. we don't know when the vote will happen. first he has to go thr

. and the senate committee just delayed a vote on the president's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. lawmakers say that they are hoping it would happen tomorrow. but some republicans are asking for more information from the former nebraska senator. he faced some tough questions from fellow republicans at his confirmation hearing last week. they asked him about his record on israel, iran, and other issues. senators now say they hope to vote on his nomination as soon as possible. just in to fox news, the justice department will send lawmakers the classified legal arguments for droning american citizens to death. that's according to an administration official. yesterday, we got a look at the government's guidelines for killing americans in foreign countries. basically officials don't have to take to you court, charge you with anything, give you a lawyer, even notify you. they just have to decide that you are a senior terror leader and an imminent threat to the united states and that it would be too dangerous to try to capture you so then they can kill you. senators from both parties ha
